Foveal dark adaptation in 58 subjects and photopigment regeneration in 60 subjects from 10-78 years of age exhibit parallel slowing of recovery rate with increasing age, with significant correlation of the two functions among individuals. The data are suggestive of an initial slight decline in rate before age 50, followed by a greater decline occurring at different ages in different individuals. Longitudinal data for one subject from age 40-65 show an increase in pigment regeneration time… CONTINUE READING
